The competition is a relaxed fun day for all. It is a great opportunity to try a new event and our coaches are on hand to give advice. Don’t be afraid to try something new, it’s all a bit of FUN!
Time allowing, we may have a relay race at the end. This will be decided on the day.
Parents, our coaches and some senior/master athletes have agreed to help on the day, but we need your help too. We would appreciate if you put your name forward to help on the day – don’t worry about any experience as you’ll be assisting a senior coach. The only thing we expect is a smile, good sense of fun and perhaps a little muscle to move hurdles or rake the sand.
The entry form is now open on our website (Click Here), please submit your entry without delay – ENTRIES OPEN TILL TUESDAY 15th JANUARY.
